How To Write A Funeral Sermon

Writing a funeral sermon is never easy, especially if the funeral is for a non-believer. On the other hand, if the funeral is for a believer, then the funeral sermon is focused on the celebration of the life of that person and his/her relationship with Jesus Christ.

The best funeral sermons often dovetail through the whole funeral service. Therefore, it is important to have a funeral service outline that faciliates this approach.

Free Funeral Sermons

Free Funeral Sermons

The two free funeral sermons available for download have been written with the above approach in mind (see funeral sermon outline above). One funeral sermon was for a Christian funeral and the other funeral sermon was for a non-Christian funeral.

Names and private information have been changed to protect the identity of the deceased persons.

The sermon written for the Christian was a celebration of his life here on earth. He wanted people to know that he was a Chritian, that death was not the end and that he was now in heaven. So he wanted the message to focus on heaven. He wanted to encourage people to think about their eternal destiny.

The sermon written for the non-Christian had a different focus. The family wanted to reflect upon their mother's journey through life. They gave me their mother's favorite poem to use as an expression of her life. Unbeknown to them this poem had a biblical message. So I used that poem as a central part of the message.

I have provided these two free funeral sermons as a resource for building your repertoire of funeral and memorial sermons. As I said before, we are all unique in the way that we present our information to people. Therefore, you may be able to use parts of these messages as ideas for developing funeral or memorial sermons.
